This book has been a project spanning several years. Many have commented
that the first edition was one of the best technical books they ever read. What’s
made this book a reality are the many people that aided in its development.
We took a big risk in developing the second edition of this book and decided
to build the book on the Web. We received feedback from around the world
when writing this book, and thus we have an evolving list of contributors and
As a database developer, you are responsible for creating and managing databases and tables. While creating tables, it is important for you to maintain data integrity. This implies that the data in the tables is accurate, consistent, and reliable. SQL Server provides various checks that you can apply on tables to enforce data integrity. The SQL Server contains various system databases. This chapter introduces the different types of system databases.

Web applications provide end users with client access to
server functionality through a set of Web pages. These
pages often contain script code to be executed dynami-
cally within the client Web browser.
Most Web applications aim to enforce simple, intu-
itive security policies, such as, forWeb-based email, dis-
allowing any scripts in untrusted email messages.
Twenty years ago, most computer centers had a few large computers shared by several
hundred users. The "computing environment" was usually a room containing dozens of
terminals. All users worked in the same place, with one set of disks, one user account
information file, and one view of all resources. Today, local area networks have made
terminal rooms much less common.

You can enhance Oracle performance by adjusting database applications, the database
itself, and the operating system. Making such adjustments is known as tuning.
Proper tuning of Oracle provides the best possible database performance for your
specific application and hardware configuration.
Note: Oracle8 Tuning contains information that describes the features and functionality
of the Oracle8 and the Oracle8 Enterprise Edition products. Oracle8 and
Oracle8 Enterprise Edition have the same basic features.
This book provides examples using the IQuery, ICriteria, QueryOver, and LINQ to NHibernate API’s within the context of an example Guitar Store inventory program. The reader is walked through the creation of a Microsoft SQL Server 2008 database, the creation of a Visual Studio 2010 solution consisting of 3 projects (a Window Presentation Foundation (WPF), a Console Application, and a Class Library). Each one utilizes the .NET 4.0 framework. Then the reader is walked through the steps required to configure and use the many features available contained within NHibernate 3.2.

The existence of different autonomous Web sites containing related information
has given rise to the problem of integrating these sources effectively to provide a
comprehensive integrated source of relevant information. The advent of e-commerce
and the increasing trend of availability of commercial data on the Web has generated
the need to analyze and manipulate these data to support corporate decision
making. Decision support systems now must be able to harness and analyze Web
data to provide organizations with a competitive edge.
The SAS In-Database technology described in this paper relates to a variety of environments, including grid, blade
servers, and event management containers. The focus here is on its application to database management systems.
The goal of the SAS In-Database initiative is not only to achieve deeper technical integration with database providers, but
to also extend this integration to a unique and differentiated value proposition that blends the best SAS data integration
and analytics with the core strengths of databases.
